The article examines the role of intersectoral policy coordinationfor the outcomes from EPI in multisectoral issues. Through the application of thematicidea analysis, it explores the development of EPI in Swedish policies regarding agriculturalbioenergy production—energy and agricultural policy—with specific focus on energyforest cultivation.
